Head of Design Explain Mercedes Concept Style Coupe

We’ve already covered this exciting preview for a production compact four-door coupe already. Frankly, the actual car that will be called the CLA and will roll out of Mercedes’ Hungarian plant next year will be nothing like as cool as this, but we’re still drawn to the ideas behind the Concept Style Coupe.
The body of the car takes its cues from the bigger CLS four-door coupe, but scaled to the size of the new MFA platform that also underpins the A-Class and B-Class. Daimler design head Gorden Wagener explains that part of the cars appeal comes from its high beltline and small greehouse. These will be used by the actual production car.

However, the signal lights that look like batting eyelashes or the center of the headlight that’s like a red eye, those are unlikely to come off an assembly line.
